  2. 1939: 
    MANAGER REACTION- West Ham 1-3 Man City
    Manuel Pellegrini & Sergio Aguero

    Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini: "Winning the game was the most important thing for us. We played very well, and the best player for West Ham was their goalkeeper.

    "We played as well as we did against Aston Villa. Someone asked me if I needed to change the way we played away, and I do not think so.

    "Before we started the game, Chelsea and Arsenal won. We had to take the maximum. David Silva and Sergio Aguero are very important players. Seeing them playing that way is very important for the whole team.

    "This team should always play in attacking way because of the players we have. It is important to have good players on the bench. We have a lot of games to play this year.

    "We were absolutely sure playing the way we were, we would win away. We lost against Cardiff and Aston Villa, but football is like that."

  3. 1930: 
    PLAYER REACTION- West Ham 1-3 Man City
    Micah Richards

    Manchester City defender Micah Richards: "I did not think we deserved to concede. We defended well today, and Sergio Aguero was outstanding.

    "It was tough at times. They did not play with a recognised striker, it was tough to pick a man out at times. We pressed well, and did well at the end.

    "It is a nice boost for us United drawing, but Arsenal and Chelsea won. I think games like this will be the difference."

    FULL-TIME- West Ham 1-3 Man City
  8. 1919: 
    West Ham 1-3 Man City

    Ravel Morrison has been quiet tonight, he's gone missing against Yaya Toure at times, but he does get a shot away after good work from Matthew Jarvis, his effort is high over the crossbar though as we approach the end.

  9. 1915: 
    PENALTY APPEAL- West Ham 1-3 Man City

    Yaya Toure is slid into the penalty area, there's a bit of a tussle with Winston Reid, Toure goes down as he loses his balance but there's nothing given - and it's the right call. Toure had hold of Reid's shirt and he just slipped.

  10. 1914: 
    FINAL FIVE- West Ham 1-3 Man City

    Into the last few minutes then, it's gone very quiet at Upton Park where, apart from a 10-minute spell either side of the West Ham goal it's been comfortable for City.

  11. 1912: 
    AS IT STANDS
    Premier League table

    Southampton's excellent point at Old Trafford will not see them end the day in the top four as Manchester City look on course for their first away league win of the season.

    Benjamin Taylor: Three world class players combine to score a world class goal. Lovely stuff from City

    Shohidur Rahman: Don't understand why keepers fall to the floor before the shot is taken. If Jaaskelainen stayed up he would've saved that.

  13. 1909: 
    SUBSTITUTION- West Ham 1-3 Man City

    Sergio Aguero has been in deadly touch today, but his day is done as Stevan Jovetic comes on. And there will be no Carlton Cole time, as Mladen Petric is the final sub for the Hammers, replacing Kevin Nolan.

  14. 1907: 
    GOAL- West Ham 1-3 Man City - David Silva (80 mins)

    A gem, a real gem of a goal for Manchester City! Yaya Toure threads the eye of a needle to play in Sergio Aguero, who is forced slightly wide by the attentions of James Tomkins. Aguero then backheels the ball into the path of David Silva, who anticipates Winston Reid's slide, steps around him and then curls a finish into the top corner. Brilliant.

    Derek Walsh: Ref 18:50 Paul Moore. Same old City? That's fighting promotion to jump up a league. Or was the club formed in 2008?

  16. 1901: 
    SUBSTITUTION- West Ham 1-2 Man City

    It's a role he fills for club and country - a late sub to lock down a win. James Milner is on for City in place of Samir Nasri, and we have 15 minutes left.

    EUROPEAN LATEST

    Lionel Messi is back from injury for Barcelona this evening, he's on the bench for their game against Osasuna.

  18. 1858: 
    West Ham 1-2 Man City

    West Ham are yet to salvage any points from losing positions this season. Is today the day that ends? Stewart Downing has been much better since half-time, flashing in another good cross from the right that skips through the six-yard box.

  19. 1855: 
    GREAT SAVE!- West Ham 1-2 Man City

    Almost a hat-trick for Sergio Aguero! Fernandinho, who is having his most effective game that I've seen for City, beats two men inside the penalty area before Aguero takes over, curling a beauty into the corner until Jussi Jaaskelainen keeps it out.

    Aleksandar Kolarov then rifles in a low shot which forces Jaaskelainen into another low save! He is earning his corn.

  20. 1851: 
    SUBSTITUTION- West Ham 1-2 Man City

    Excellent tempo to this game now, as Sergio Aguero gets a shot away which is blocked by Winston Reid. Guy Demel then goes down with a groin injury and it's a double switch for the Hammers.

    Joey O'Brien replaces him, and Matt Jarvis replaces goalscorer Ricardo Vaz Te. City also make a change as Alvaro Negredo comes off, with Aleksandar Kolarov on. Change of shape for City then.

    Paul Moore: Here we go again, same old City!

    Alex Kraushaar: More questionable defending from City

  22. 1849: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK- West Ham 1-2 Man City

    Woosh! City right back at West Ham, Sergio Aguero playing in the overlapping Alvaro Negredo, who from a tight angle hammers in a rising shot which beats Jussi Jaaskelainen at his near post, smashes off the underside of the crossbar and bounces a foot clear of the line. What a hit!

  23. 1845: 
    GOAL- West Ham 1-2 Man City - Ricardo Vaz Te (58 mins)

    Out of nothing, West Ham are back in it! Razvan Rat's cross from the left is headed back across, Ravel Morrison helps it over his shoulder with a clever flick and Ricardo Vaz Te stays onside to launch into an overhead kick which he sends past Joe Hart!

    Brilliant improvised finish and it's game on!

  24. 1844: 
    GREAT SAVE!- West Ham 0-2 Man City

    After a slight delay due to an intruder from the crowd, Stewart Downing raises the volume with a powerful run down the right which ends with a deflected shot. Big Sam sits and wipes his eyes with disbelief.

    But here's a chance! Downing poked a pass through, Joe Hart comes flying out and makes a bold save at the feet of Mohamed Diame. West Ham's best moment.

  25. 1841: 
    West Ham 0-2 Man City

    I would not want to feel the wrath of Big Sam after that goal, that was shambolic defending. West Ham have it all to do wow, I suggest that Carlton Cole's arrival may be imminent.

    Tom, Manchester: What a header by Aguerooooo ! Is there anything he cannot do?

  27. 1838: 
    GOAL- West Ham 0-2 Man City - Sergio Aguero (51 mins)

    Woeful defending from West Ham, dear oh dear! Free-kick for Manchester City on the left wing, £38m striker Sergio Aguero is left totally unmarked eight yards out, Kevin Nolan and Ricardo Vaz Te both point to him as the cross comes in but don't actually move, Aguero stands and heads into the net. He can't quite believe his luck.

  28. 1837: 
    West Ham 0-1 Man City

    Yaya Toure goes shoulder-to-shoulder with Mohamed Diame and the result is carnage. Diame is not exactly small, but he goes down like he's been hit by a small hatchback. Free-kick in a dangerous area but Kevin Nolan is offside and the danger has gone.

  29. 1833: 
    KICK-OFF- West Ham 0-1 Man City

    Back under way at Upton Park. Can the Hammers have an effort on target and put City under pressure?

  30. 1830: 
    West Ham 0-1 Man City

    Carlton Cole was back warming up during the interval, to a warm reception from the home crowd. Will we see him back out after the break? It looks like there are no immediate changes.

    In the Championship, a late goal from Jermaine Easter cost QPR a win, with Harry Redknapp's side...

    BBC Radio 5 liveChelsea 4-1 Cardiff

    George Courtney assessor/reviewer for [top flight officials' body] PGMOL, discusses the Eto'o incident on Sports Report: "It's an interesting one. It seems to me that the goalkeeper is still in possession of the ball while he's bouncing it, according to the law. So he shouldn't be challenged.

    "If an identical incident happened tomorrow I would disallow it and award an indirect free-kick. But of course do bear in mind the Laws of the Game are open to interpretation."

  33. 1821:  
    BBC Radio 5 live, Darren Fletcher, 6-0-6 phone-in host, on Sports Report on 5 liveChelsea 4-1 Cardiff
    Samuel Eto'o and David Marshall

    "Somebody at Stamford Bridge must have been looking at the Eto'o incident. There are enough eyes among the officials there to see what happened. It is quite clear when you read the rulebook that until the ball is released by the keeper - kicked away or put on the floor - then it's still in possession of the keeper and you can't make a challenge.

    "It baffles me that a team of officials in the Premier League could get such a basic rule so wrong. I can't work it out. Big decisions like that have got to be right. It will have had had such a big effect on the Cardiff players."

  34. 1818:  
    Jason Roberts, 6-0-6 phone-in pundit on Sports Report for BBC Radio 5 liveChelsea 4-1 Cardiff

    "That Eto'o goal decision had a massive effect on the psyche of the Cardiff players. If you go somewhere like Stamford Bridge, it's hard enough to get the decisions. And they went ahead are were defending for everything they were worth. To get a decision like that that goes against you? It's a basic error by the referee.

    "I'm not here to vilify the referee but it is a basic error. For the Cardiff players it was an absolute kick in the teeth. If that goal hadn't gone in at that time, maybe Cardiff could have held on or even nicked another one."

  35. 1817: 
    WHEN IS A GOAL NOT A GOAL?- Chelsea 4-1 Cardiff

    Right then, our half-time talking point is Chelsea's first goal against Cardiff this afternoon, when Samuel Eto'o challenged David Marshall as he dropped the ball to clear it. Should the goal have stood? Was it a foul?

    Here are a few opinions...

  36. 1817: 
    HALF-TIME- West Ham 0-1 Man City
  37. 1816: 
    West Ham 0-1 Man City

    West Ham force a coupe of corners as the half comes to a close but City just about deal with them. Joe Hart makes the decision to come and punch one away and while he wasn't the most convincing, he is saved by the referee's whistle. The Hammers are yet to have an effort on target.

  38. 1811: 
    GREAT SAVE!- West Ham 0-1 Man City

    Better from West ham as Stewart Downing beats his man down the right to stand up a cross, but Ricardo Vaz Te can't force the header in under pressure.

    City instantly attack with pace, David Silva tees up Yaya Toure 20 yards out and his left-footed curler is turned away by Jussi Jaaskelainen. A good save, but you expected Toure to leather that one in .

  39. 1810:

    Charlie: Don't see too many people applauding Southampton. We fully deserved that point, if not the whole three!

  40. 1809: 
    West Ham 0-1 Man City

    Manchester City have a tendency to look fragile at the back whenever they are forced to play without Vincent Kompany, but so far stand-in Javi Garcia has been untroubled. Carlton Cole on in the second half to rough him up? Put your house on it.

    Alvaro Negredo peels off to space on the right and crosses well, but David Silva heads wide.

  41. 1802: 
    CLOSE!- West Ham 0-1 Man City

    Not for the first time Manchester City just want it more, as Alvaro Negredo powers past James Tomkins to win the loose ball, he surges into the area but drags his shot wide when he had Yaya Toure on his right crying out for a pass.

    At the other end, Razvan Rat whips in a great ball and Matija Nastasic cuts it out with some fine defending.

  42. 1759:

    Present & Future: Can't think of a world class coach who at 50 hadn't won a trophy. Moyes is a mid table manager.

    DJCarter85: Southampton are a very good team this season. If Manchester United had started well then this would be classed as a good result today.

    Haider Farouq: What David Moyes has to understand is... As Manchester United manager, you never plan to "see games out". Complete contrast to Fergie.

  43. 1758: 
    ACROBATIC EFFORT- West Ham 0-1 Man City

    West Ham coming back into the game now, but their lack of a recognised striker may be an issue. Twice they work the ball into a good area out wide but the moves peter out. Ricardo Vaz Te tries an ambitious overhead kick but he can't connect.

  44. 1756: 
    LALLANA GETS THE GOAL- Manchester United 1-1 Southampton

    Southampton's late goal has now been credited to captain Adam Lallana. He was standing in front of David de Gea and Dejan Lovren's shot went in after brushing his legs. They all count.

  45. 1755: 
    YELLOW CARD- West Ham 0-1 Man City

    Not a great tackle from David Silva as he tries to charge down a cross from Razvan Rat, it's a late tackle and he floors the Romanian. It's a booking for Silva.

  46. 1753:

  47. 1751: 
    CLOSE!- West Ham 0-1 Man City

    Manchester City's intensity is just too much for West Ham at the moment. Fernandinho wins the ball again in midfield, and Sergio Aguero is off. He hares through the middle, gets into the area and while his left-footed shot isn't the most crisply struck, David Silva almost taps it in until Winston Reid extends a leg to clear. It's been a very strong 10 minutes for the visitors.

  48. 1749:  
    Former England international Danny Mills on Final ScoreWest Ham 0-1 Man City

    "Sergio Aguero waited to pick his spot, and it was a fantastic finish.

  49. 1748: 
    GREAT SAVE!- West Ham 0-1 Man City

    West Ham kept four clean sheets in their opening seven games but you wouldn't guess it from their defending so far. Alvaro Negredo wins a header to find Sergio Aguero and his cannon of a shot is well kept out by Jussi Jaaskelainen.

    GOAL- West Ham 0-1 Man City - Sergio Aguero (16 mins)

    Ice cool finishing. Fernandinho plays a ball through from the back, Alvaro Negredo cleverly lets the ball run through his legs, it foxes the defence and Sergio Aguero is in on goal. He is so calm and just rolls the ball into the corner.

  52. 1743: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Manchester United 1-1 Southampton
    David Moyes

    Manchester United manager David Moyes: "We had the opportunities to go 2-0 up. They had been knocking on the door but I thought we would see it out.

    "But if you don't defend a corner well enough, there's always a chance they will score. We had a couple of good chances where we could have finished them off and if we had scored a second it would've put the game to bed, but 1-0 is always a dangerous scoreline."

  53. 1743: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Arsenal 4-1 Norwich

    Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger: "A few weeks ago we lost our first home game here and it was a difficult time but we responded well and since then we have been consistent.

    "I like the solidarity in the team, of course we have quality, but it's how much we maintain that and sustain that, that will decide our future."

  54. 1743:  
    Former England international Danny Mills on Final ScoreArsenal 4-1 Norwich

    ALLARDICI'S TACTICS MASTERCLASS- West Ham 0-0 Man City

    Big Sam loved it when he won at Tottenham last time out without playing a striker and he's at it again. Ricardo Vaz Te, Kevin Nolan and Mohamed Diame are all at times playing up the front but it's very fluid. A 4-6-0 if you like.

    At the other end David Silva plays a wonderful through ball to Alvaro Negredo but he is closed down and it's away for a corner.

  56. 1740: 
    GET INVOLVED VIA 81111

    Adam in Manchester: It's not just the fact that Moyes is dropping points left, right and centre. It's the fact that under him you can't even see what kind of team United are supposed to be. Add that to the fact that the only addition was the anonymous Fellaini and the decision to completely change the backroom for no reason at all. That's why United fans are complaining. It's not being fickle, people expected a change when Ferguson left - just not this badly.

  57. 1739: 

    So we may be into a debate over when a goalkeeper 'bounces' the ball, and when a goalkeeper 'drops' the ball now...

  58. 1738: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Chelsea 4-1 Cardiff
    Malky Mackay

    Cardiff boss Malky Mackay on Chelsea's controversial opener: "At the time, I didn't see but I've been in to see the referee. Our goalkeeper bounced the ball. He saw the player standing there.

    "The referee is saying that, at the time, he heard from his linesman that he dropped the ball. He said immediately, if the goalkeeper bounces the ball, it's a foul on him. He obviously bounces the ball and it's a huge mistake. A horrendous error.

    "They've got it wrong between them and it's cost us. We've gone in one-each at half-time instead of one-nil."

    BBC Radio 5 liveManchester United 1-1 Southampton

    Jose Fonte, Southampton centre-back, on Sports Report on 5 live: "We started the game very well, and the first 20 minutes was very strong - we controlled the game. But after that we went to sleep a little bit and they scored. But we managed to stay in the game, had a good team talk at half-time, and in the second half we came back and kept going, kept pressing. We dominated the second half and deserved the equaliser.

    "The gaffer told us to believe in ourselves and our philosophy. In the second half we pressed very high and dominated the game. We deserved at least a point. We press from the front and that makes our job at the back easier. The whole team works very hard as a team, and the results are there to see. We need to keep going, keep working and keep improving."

    COACH REACTION- Chelsea 4-1 Cardiff
    Jose Mourinho

    Chelsea assistant first-team coach Steve Holland on Jose Mourinho's sending off:

    "Jose is very frustrated about the time-wasting. From the first minute, they took a long time to take every dead ball.

    "We mentioned it politely to the fourth official and referee. It was a deliberate ploy to break up the game and needed some action.

    "It was 56 minutes before their goalkeeper finally received a caution. The game changed when we got ahead. They kicked the ball out for us to take a throw in. The ball boy went to get it, threw the ball to Branislav Ivanovic, missed, and so it was in the dug-out area. Ivanovic had the ball in his hands for two seconds, and the referee was gesticulating for him to get it back into play.

    "Jose was furious on the touchlines. For an hour, we'd been frustrated by their clear time-wasting.

    "Supporters pay good money to watch a game of football and, from a few minutes in, their restarts were taking longer and longer.

    "It's very frustrating for Jose to then be sent off for protesting after we have to throw the ball in within two seconds of getting it."

    Tony Pulis, Former Stoke manager at Old Trafford for BBC Radio 5 liveManchester United 1-1 Southampton

    "This is the third time I've watched Southampton this season and I've been impressed every time. In the first 20 minutes they really did do well and created opportunities and chances. United never really had sustained pressure, which you'd expect them to have at Old Trafford. Southampton, when they scored, had seven players in the box. They deserved their equaliser.

    "David Moyes has taken over an almost impossible job, and you have to give him time to build his own team. Nobody should be shouting or hollering. David is the right man, I'm sure, but you've got to give him time. The problem he will have is expectations - United are a top, top team. He will have to deal with it, and it will be a bit of pressure on him."

    "It was deserved for Southampton. Credit to them for their ambition. They started well and dominated the early stages.

    Norwich manager Chris Hughton: "We were well in the game and at half-time we felt that if we had good periods like we did in first half, we could get something from the game. But they have wonderful players who, when they have half-chances, can turn them into goals."

    Manchester United 1-0 Southampton

    Manchester United have twice hit the woodwork since taking the lead, but Southampton are still creating chances at Old Trafford and still hopeful of claiming a point.

    Youssouf Mulumbu ghosts past Charlie Adam in the penalty area, only for the former Liverpool midfielder to tread on his heels.

  132. 1622: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK- Manchester United 1-0 Southampton

    Southampton are still in this game, but only just. Wayne Rooney's left-wing corner is met at the near post by Robin van Persie, whose header hits the bar, before Nani is denied by Artur Boruc.

    The Saints goalkeeper then has to make an excellent save to block Adnan Januzaj's effort. Marouane Fellaini, who has been quiet today, should hit the target with the rebound but screws his shot horribly wide.

    GREAT SAVE!- Arsenal 1-0 Norwich

    Norwich have improved since Arsenal's unsung midfield man Mathieu Flamini had to come off, and Wojciech Szczesny is forced into a fine save from Leroy Fer's dipping shot. Mikel Arteta and Aaron Ramsey are being asked to do the donkey work in that Arsenal midfield now.

  175. 1544:

    YELLOW CARD- Swansea 0-0 Sunderland

    Robin van Persie puts Manchester United ahead. Teenager Adnan Januzaj, who signed a five-year deal with the club earlier today, is heavily involved as his pass dissects the Saints defence.

    Wayne Rooney runs on to it but his shot is blocked by Artur Boruc and the ball falls to van Persie. The Dutch forward takes it around the Polish goalkeeper and puts the ball into the net.

  199. 1524:

    It seems that Gareth Barry may have got the slightest of touches to Kevin Mirallas's opener - maybe that is why Allan McGregor let it go. Anyway, Hull are pressing Everton high up the pitch as Sylvain Distin is forced into a heavy backpass which Tim Howard has to shank out for a corner.

    Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant one-touch play from Arsenal sees them weave through the Norwich defence. Santi Cazorla, Jack Wilshere and Olivier Giroud are all involved before Giroud flicks one of those lovely little lay-offs he's so good at into the path of Wilshere, and he steers home. He's onside, and that is a great opener.

    I'm sure Arsenal fans will be glad to see Santi Cazorla back in action and the Spaniard twists his way into space in the penalty area and gets a shot away, but it's easily held by John Ruddy.

    Malky Mackay has not had an easy few weeks has he?

    The Cardiff gaffer was known to be upset at club owner Vincent Tan's bizarre decision to axe head of recruitment Iain Moody and replace him with an unknown 23-year-old who was formerly on work experience. As you would be.

    Mackay also stressed that they were "under budget" on transfers despite a summer of heavy recruitment, but insisted this week that he is not going anywhere. Yet.

    "Under no circumstances was I asked to resign and at no time have I thought of resigning from the club," Mackay said.

    With some newspaper reports suggesting that Tan is keen to select the team and is suggesting substitutions though, you wonder how long Mackay can last.

    Expect plenty of intricate passing in this one today - Michael Laudrup and Gus Poyet don't believe in smashing it. The opening minutes have seen exactly that, with the home side dictating the play so far.

    BBC Sport's Ben Smith at Old TraffordManchester United 0-0 Southampton

    "Few would have predicted Southampton would find themselves above Manchester United after seven games of the season but there is a confidence and belief about Mauricio Pochettino's side even as they walk out at a ground where they have not won since 1988.

    "The decision to leave Rickie Lambert out of the side in favour of an extra midfielder, Steven Davis, hints that Southampton may be a little more cautious than usual but United need a victory to build on that Adnan Januzaj-inspired win over Sunderland before the international break.

    WHAT'S IN A NAME?- Arsenal v Norwich (1500 BST)

    The Premier League table may say that Norwich go into their game against Arsenal in the bottom three but that is only because of alphabetical order. Technically, they are joint 17th with Fulham as both teams are equal on points, goal difference and goals scored.

    If this is the case, Premier League rules say they are: "deemed to occupy the same position in the table". Presumably, a play-off would sort this out if it happened at the end of the season?

    You couldn't go down on alphabetical order - surely...?

    Unlike the Mansfield Town kit man (re 1348), his counterpart at Arsenal has managed to remember to carry out his job for the visit of Norwich.

    "Liverpool always have that quality to get back into a game. Victor Moses had been quiet before playing in a fantastic pass to Luis Suarez for the equaliser."

    Angel Pablo: The three musketeers have done it for Liverpool.

    Ash: Sturridge, misses easy chances and easy passes at times, but how often he scores these important goals.

    Tokunbo: Newcastle, please stop playing for an offside when you clearly know that you are not very good at it.

    HITS THE WOODWORK- Newcastle 2-2 Liverpool

    Newcastle are struggling to cope with Liverpool at the moment and it should be 3-2 to the Reds.

    Aly Cissokho's cross is pulled back for Suarez, the Uruguay international runs on to it and blasts a powerful effort at goal and the ball bounces off the top of Tim Krul's crossbar. Very unlucky. It's another cracking game between these two sides.

  257. 1415: 
    GOAL- Newcastle 2-2 Liverpool - Daniel Sturridge (72 mins)

    Liverpool make it 2-2 at St James' Park. A lovely pass from Victor Moses finds Luis Suarez and the Uruguay striker is unselfish to dink the ball across the face of goal to enable Daniel Sturridge to score with a diving header from close range.

    Great link-up play between Suarez and Sturridge, who has now scored in eight of the 10 matches he has played for Liverpool this season.

  258. 1414: 
    Everton v Hull (1500 BST)

    Everton's Gareth Barry returns after being ineligible, with Steven Naismith dropping to the bench as Roberto Martinez makes one change to the team beaten 3-1 at Manchester City before the international break.

    Hull also make one alteration, with Robbie Brady, who has recovered from hernia surgery, coming into the side at the expense of Stephen Quinn.

    Everton: Howard, Coleman, Jagielka, Distin, Baines, McCarthy, Barry, Mirallas, Barkley, Osman, Lukaku. Subs: Robles, Jelavic, Kone, Deulofeu, Naismith, Pienaar, Stones.

    Hull: McGregor, Rosenior, Davies, Faye, Figueroa, Elmohamady, Huddlestone, Livermore, Brady, Aluko, Graham. Subs: Bruce, Meyler, McShane, Boyd, Sagbo, Harper, Quinn.

  259. 1412: 
    Newcastle 2-1 Liverpool

    Cheick Tiote leads a counter-attack for Newcastle, who have three strikers against three defenders. But Tiote is greedy, shooting well wide, when a pass would have been a better option.

  260. 1411: 
    FULL-TIME- Blackpool 1-0 Wigan

    Blackpool clinch victory by a 1-0 margin in their home game against Wigan Athletic. The visitors end with 10 men on the pitch as James McClean is sent off in injury-time for kicking out at Gary MacKenzie. Tom Ince scored the only goal of the game with a first-half penalty.

  261. 1411: 
    BREAKING TEAM NEWS- Arsenal v Norwich (1500 BST)

    Mesut Ozil is fit to start for Arsenal, as is Santi Cazorla - but there's no Aaron Ramsey. Ricky van Wolfswinkel misses out for Norwich with a toe injury.

    Norwich XI: Ruddy; Martin, Bassong, Turner, Olsson; Tettey, Fer, Howson; Snodgrass, Pilkington, Hooper.

    Boy/man of the moment Adnan Januzaj starts for Manchester United, as do Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney.

    BREAKING TEAM NEWS- Chelsea v Cardiff (1500 BST)

    Samuel Eto'o and Willian start for Chelsea, while Ryan Bertrand fills in at left-back for Ashley Cole.

    Cardiff make two changes from the side that lost at home to Newcastle a fortnight ago. Jordon Mutch and Don Cowie replace Kim Bo-Kyung and Frazier Campbell, who both drop to the bench. Craig Bellamy, who retired from international football after playing for Wales for the final time this week, does not make the Bluebirds squad.

    Chelsea XI: Cech; Ivanovic, D Luiz, Terry, Bertrand; Ramires, Lampard; Willian, Mata, Hazard; Eto'o

    Cardiff XI: Marshall; Taylor, Caulker, Turner, Whittingham, Medel, Odemwingie, Gunnarsson, Mutch, Cowie, Theophile-Catherine.

  265.   
    Former Liverpool defender Jim Beglin at St James' ParkNewcastle 2-1 Liverpool

    "Liverpool have gone 4-4-2 now after that substitution. Victor Moses has moved out wide from his position near to Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge."

    Listen to commentary of Newcastle v Liverpool on BBC Radio 5 live now.

  266. 1407: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Newcastle 2-1 Liverpool

    Liverpool make an attacking change as Luis Alberto comes on for Mamadou Sakho.

  267. 1405: 
    CLOSE!- Newcastle 2-1 Liverpool

    Glen Johnson nearly makes it 2-2 but shoots over the bar, before Jordan Henderson does likewise.

  268. 1404: 
    BREAKING TEAM NEWS- Swansea v Sunderland (1500 BST)

    Steven Fletcher starts for Sunderland in Gus Poyet's first game in charge.

    Swansea XI: Vorm, Rangel, Chico, Amat, Davies, Britton, de Guzman, Michu, Dyer, Routledge, Bony

    Sunderland XI: Westwood, Celustka, Bardsley, O'Shea, Roberge, Cattermole, Johnson, Larsson, Gardner, Giaccherini, Fletcher.

  269. 1402:  
    Former Liverpool defender Jim Beglin at St James' ParkNewcastle 2-1 Liverpool

    "Who would have thought that? Newcastle had to capitalise on situations like that.

    "Two Liverpool players were sleeping at the back post, Mamadou Sakho and Aly Cissokho. They both thought it would be dealt with in front of them."

    Listen to commentary of Newcastle v Liverpool on BBC Radio 5 live now.

  270. 1359: 
    GOAL- Newcastle 2-1 Liverpool - Paul Dummett (57 mins)

    Incredible scenes at St James' Park as 22-year-old defender Paul Dummett puts 10-man Newcastle ahead. He side-foots a volley past Simon Mignolet at the back post after a floating free-kick into the penalty area from Yohan Cabaye.

    Dummett has been with Newcastle since he was nine years old and this was his first goal for the club in only his second Premier League appearance.

    He came on to the pitch following the dismissal of Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa in an attempt to tighten up the defence, but he could now prove to be the match-winner. Liverpool have 33 minutes to find an equaliser.

  271. 1357: 
    GET INVOLVED- #bbcfootball

    Some more thoughts on the decision to award Liverpool a first-half penalty and send off Newcastle's Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa.

    Jamie Jenkins: It's a foul and a sending off whether Suarez went down easy or not. The decision to grab his shoulder is just nonsensical.

    Siri Macthorpe: People saying Marriner has punished Newcastle twice - Yanga-Mbiwa committed the foul. Red card in letter and spirit of the law.

    Dazcarr: There's no such thing as a simple game of football with Newcastle. Always with the dramas.

  272. 1356:  
    Former Liverpool defender Jim Beglin at St James' ParkNewcastle 1-1 Liverpool

    "Martin Skrtel considered giving Remy a pull back, but he thought better of it. He did put a hand on Loic Remy's shoulder, and the striker could have made more of it.

    Listen to commentary of Newcastle v Liverpool on BBC Radio 5 live now.

  273. 1355: 
    Newcastle 1-1 Liverpool

    Loic Remy is then involved at the other end as he seems to be clean through, but a well-timed sliding-tackle from Martin Skrtel denies the Frenchman.

  274. 1353: 
    Newcastle 1-1 Liverpool

    Steven Gerrard is a very lucky man. The Liverpool goalscorer was booked at the end of the first half and could have seen red for a second booking when he blocked Loic Remy.

    We have already had one player sent off, but Andre Marriner gives Gerrard the benefit of the doubt and he stays on.

  275. 1351: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Newcastle 1-1 Liverpool

    Liverpool, unsurprisingly, are pushing to take the lead and Tim Krul has to produce a smart save down to his left to keep out Glen Johnson's effort.

  276. 1350:  
    Former Liverpool defender Jim Beglin at St James' ParkNewcastle 1-1 Liverpool

    "It was a smokescreen Newcastle's protestations about the penalty. Cheick Tiote kept Luis Suarez onside after being injured."

    Steven Gerrard scores

    Andrew in Cardiff on text: That was never a penalty! He barely brushed up against Suarez!

    J in Kent on text: Technique and naivety. Cabaye with a wonderful hit, skidding past Mignolet. Yanga-Mbiwa with poor judgement in the box. Expect the Reds to dominate possession in the second half, dare I say 2-2?

  278. 1348: 
    KICK-OFF- Newcastle 1-1 Liverpool

    The second half has started at St James' Park. Can 10-man Newcastle hold on to a point against Liverpool, who are set to return to the top of the Premier League, although Arsenal can then replace them back at the summit later today.

  279. 1348: 
    KIT MAN CATASTROPHE

    Brent Pilnick from BBC Radio Devon reports that Mansfield Town have forgotten to pack their kit, and will be wearing the Torquay United away strip for their League Two clash.

    It seems another person has joined the kit man hall of shame, after a Millwall employee made the same mistake in their 2-2 draw at Sheffield Wednesday in August.

  280. 1348: 
    LEAGUE TWO PREVIEW

    Table-topping Chesterfield are in a mini-rut, having collected just one point from their last three games. The Spireites host 14th placed Burton, who suffered a potentially confidence-sapping 1-0 defeat to Southend and a injury-time Freddie Eastwood goal a week ago.

    Second placed Fleetwood's 2-0 defeat on Friday night opens the door to any side from Oxford, Morecambe, Rochdale, Southend, Exeter and Mansfield climbing into the automatic promotion places. Oxford stand possibly the best chance with a game away at bottom side Accrington.

    Former England striker James Beattie's Stanley side are in danger of being cut adrift after failing to win any of their 11 matches to date. But the boss remains bullish: "If we show commitment and desire we won't be at the bottom much longer," he insists. "The players are walking around with their chests out, wearing the crest of the club and they've done it very proud."

    And managerless Bury travel to Portsmouth for their first game since Kevin Blackwell was sacked - former Gillingham boss Ronnie Jepson take temporary charge.

  281. 1346: 
    LEAGUE ONE PREVIEW

    Gillingham begin life without manager Martin Allen, who was relieved of his duties on Sunday after accumulating just nine points from 11 games, with a game at home to Preston.

    Peter Taylor is in interim charge at Priestfield: "Hopefully I get well received and more importantly hopefully the team perform well," he says.

    Sheffield United are also without a permanent manager and are rock bottom of the league having not won since beating Notts County in the season opener on 2 August. Visitors Port Vale, who start the day 12th, are managed by ex-Blades boss Micky Adams, who was sacked following relegation in May 2012 after just 24 games in charge.

    At the top, leaders Leyton Orient will be confident of continuing their unbeaten start to the season as they travel to struggling Tranmere Rovers - but any points dropped could see them overtaken by Peterborough, who host Shrewsbury.

  282. 1345: 
    CHAMPIONSHIP PREVIEW

    Ten matches kick-off at 1500, with leaders Burnley travelling to Ipswich Town, who have won their last three matches at Portman Road. The Clarets, however, have tasted victory only once in 19 league visits to the Suffolk side - way back in January 1970.

    Second-placed QPR are looking to extend the division's only unbeaten run with an away game at Millwall - the R's current tally of 26 points from 10 games is the same mark as in 2010-11 when they last won promotion to the Premier League.

    Sheffield Wednesday are aiming for their first league win of the season at fellow strugglers Bolton, who claimed their first victory of the campaign at Birmingham a week ago.

    And bottom club Barnsley host 14th placed Middlesbrough, but the Tykes have a -16 goal difference, the worst in English football's top four divisions. A ray of light for the Oakwell faithful? The Tykes did the double over Middlesbrough last season.

  283. 1345:  
    MOTD's Martin Fisher at the LibertySwansea v Sunderland (1500 BST)

    "Gus Poyet could have been sat in the opposite dug-out this weekend. He very nearly succeeded Roberto Martinez in the summer of 2009 but lost out to Paulo Sousa. Four years on, the Liberty Stadium is the stage for his first taste of Premier League management. What a job he has on his hands.

    "After the flamboyant, some would say crazy, but certainly unorthodox style of Paolo Di Canio, Poyet inherits a Sunderland side rock bottom after their worst ever start to a season."

  284. 1344:  
    MOTD's Alistair Mann at the BritanniaStoke v West Brom (1500 BST)

    "If anyone ever asks me what's the worst Premier League game I've ever witnessed, then without hesitation I'll respond with the dour goalless draw between Stoke and West Brom earlier this year.

    "Seven months on though, there are many reasons to be a great deal more optimistic this time around. From a neutral perspective though, I'm just keen for it not to end goalless."

  285. 1343:  
    MOTD's Steve Wilson at Old TraffordMan Utd v Southampton (1500 BST)

    "It is back to the day jobs for both Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie after some very successful international moonlighting.

    "Rooney's goals were certainly important in guiding England to the World Cup, while a Van Persie hat-trick against Hungary made him the Netherlands' all-time top scorer, beating Patrick Kluivert's record.

    "For all this finery though, United go into the Southampton game four points adrift of their visitors, who are in their highest league position - fourth - since December 2003."

  286. 1342:  
    MOTD's Steve Bower at Goodison ParkEverton v Hull (1500 BST)

    "Everton fans are loving having Romelu Lukaku. His impact could be huge over the season.

    "He's the type of player the Toffees have been seeking for years. I watched him many times for West Brom last season and he always carried a big threat.

    "But Hull have already won at Newcastle and also asked Manchester City a few questions at the Etihad."

  287. 1341:  
    MOTD's John Motson at Stamford BridgeChelsea v Cardiff (1500 BST)

    "It's been a week of turmoil in south Wales, and at one point I'm sure the Cardiff fans were concerned they might lose their manager.

    "Football never fails to surprise. But for a 23-year-old to go from doing the painting on work experience to being Cardiff's acting head of recruitment is undoubtedly one of the stranger stories.

    "I think the goings-on will strengthen Malky Mackay's standing as manager with the team, and Chelsea will do well to be on their guard on Saturday."

  288. 1339:  
    MOTD's Jonathan Pearce at Emirates StadiumArsenal v Norwich (1500 BST)

    "Arsenal deserve to top the table, with goals flowing and a much-improved defence in front of the rapidly maturing Wojciech Szczesny. This match, though, is the sort of banana skin that sorts out genuine title contenders from mere pretenders.

    "After a World Cup qualification break, and with minds drifting ahead to Tuesday's Champions League crunch meeting with Borussia Dortmund, there's a danger that the leaders might slip up. Don't forget that exactly 12 months ago Arsenal went to Carrow Road after the October international break and lost 1-0."

    HALF-TIME STATS- Newcastle 1-1 Liverpool
    Newcastle v Liverpool

    It's been a fairly even first half at St James' Park, with both sides getting plenty of shots away. That fifth - and final - foul for Newcastle may yet prove decisive though.

  292. 1335:  
    MOTD commentator Guy Mowbray at St James' ParkNewcastle 1-1 Liverpool

    What a half it has been. Two goals, a superb one by Cabaye to get the game going and then one Newcastle felt aggrieved by, with Steven Gerrard scoring from the penalty spot for his 100th Premier League goal.

  293. 1334:  
    Former Liverpool defender Jim Beglin at St James' ParkNewcastle 1-1 Liverpool

    "A huge decision has altered affairs. I thought Newcastle had been set-up very well, and Yohan Cabaye delivered in great fashion.

    "The foul had to be a red card. Now, you will feel Liverpool will have a bit more time on the ball to create some openings."

  294. 1334: 
    HALF-TIME- Newcastle 1-1 Liverpool

    We told you to expect goals and we have seen two already. With Newcastle down to 10 men, we may well be seeing more in the second half.

  295. 1333: 
    YELLOW CARD - GERRARD (LIVERPOOL)- Newcastle 1-1 Liverpool

    Steven Gerrard has just scored, but he is also the next name in Andre Marriner's book. Gerrard pulled back Yohan Cabaye, it looked a bit soft but the yellow card is shown.
